Pikachu's adorable face is plastered onto practically every type of product you can imagine these days, so why not throw a ridable, rubber seat into the mix, too?
Introducing Pokémon Air, a new Pikachu toy designed for people ages three and up. Perfect for riding on around the living room – we've all seen Ash Ketchum racing around on Pikachu's back in the TV show, right? – the Pokémon Air can hold up to 100 kilos (or around 15-and-a-half stone). This means that some adults will be able to ride Pikachu too, which is fantastic.
If Pikachu rides aren't your thing, the Pokémon Air can also be used as something to lean on, perfect for those times when your cushions aren't Pikachu-shaped enough. This alternative use for the product has been wonderfully demonstrated in the image below.
Apparently it arrives in a deflated state, so you'll have to pump it up when you first get it. You do that by erm... Oh.
Pre-orders for Pokémon Air are going live in Japan next month on 1st October, with pricing set at ￥7,500 yen (around $71 / £55). Shipping starts in November, although there's no mention of a worldwide release just yet.
Fancy getting your hands on one of these? Let us know in the usual place.

Of course you blow air up it’s arse.
Pokémon Air and Pokémon Soil
I mean, I guess it makes sense to pump air there.
I was all set to order 3 of these cos I love a bit of rear end inflation, but I'm not about to be gouged for £55 each. One misplaced fork, knife, pin, charging cable etc. and it's RIP £55 Pikachu 😭
Surely Snorlax would be better suited for this?
The furries will enjoy riding it no doubt.
Yeah, that's happened more than once actually.
@Clyde_Radcliffe Them perhaps and everyone else that likes pikachu
Going to fly off the shelves in Wales.
It's... It's an inflatable rat.
Also look at all the haafu kids in the advert. Strange that it's nothing but. Saying this as a father of a haafu kid myself BTW.
Question, does it vibrate?
@riChchestM What’s a haafu? Sounds like a typo.
@gcunit "rear end inflation"
"Pokémon Air can hold up to 100 kilos (or around 15-and-a-half stone). This means that some adults will be able to ride Pikachu too"
Most adults qualify. 100kg is quite a lot.
@Xiovanni I was going to laugh at that but it turns out, I could actually sit on it and I'm a a pretty big guy.
For my American friends...100 kilos is 220 lbs.
@TG16_IS_BAE It means half. Half Japanese and half other ethnicity.
Will be a hit at tech companies looking for fancy cushions to place in the lounge and recreation areas.
"rear end inflation"
Post the picture of rear end inflation to Ellen Show in segment "What's Wrong With These Photos?" 🤣🤣🤣
they need to stop announcing so much stuff and focus on what they already have announced that doesnt have much info. like pokemon sleep, new pokemon snap, etc
I want Pokémon Do My Taxes.
@NikHogan ...do you think the people making plastic Pikachu blow up toys are the same people who make the video games?
@TeslaChippie Going by the graphical improvements seen in Sw/Sh I'ma gonna say... yeh.
@TeslaChippie nono, absolutely not. its just aggravating getting so many irrelevent projects at once. mind you i dont want sinnoh remakes or gen 9 anytime soon so spinoffs are great! i just wish we would get more info on the side projects we already know about!
No hoverjets? Pass
@gcunit it's fine if you have any kind of fetish. As long as you aren't a pedo.
just don't use it as your profile pic.
@Anti-Matter Oh, Ellen, isn't that the one star that isn't a good person at all? Well of course, what other strange parents would call their kid Ellen?
I do wonder what they're thinking when they think of where to pump these things up.......
Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony.
I'm sorry, did I just watch somebody insert an anal probe into Pikachu? Before mounting and riding Pikachu?
Is this a new trailer for Pokémon S and Pokémon M?
(**Bowser costume sold separately)
when i saw the words: "Pokémon Air Is A Pikachu You Can Ride", i almost thought that the Pokemon company decided to open their own airline or at least team up with one.
The tail is missing.
@Snatcher perhaps it’s sold as a separate... plug.
But does it have a hole in the mouth? Asking for a friend.
@Eel You know, I was going to go with that joke, but then I thought that might be mod-unfriendly. And here we are.
@NEStalgia inflatables use plugs! They keep the air in 😃
Why, what were you thinking about? 🤔
You can ride? You mean you can sit on?
Oh my god...
XD that wasn't on accident.
Are they trolling Apple who's just announced the new iPad Air? lol
Everyone's too distracted by the rear end inflation to lament their preference for riding more obscure Pokemon, like Arcanine.
@Ulysses Please don't invoke demand for the Gardevoir version of this....
It’s just a reskinned Space Hopper 😂😂
No, a Pikachu that you blow up by umm.... well you know IS 71 DOLLARS WHYYYYYYY
I look forward to the many, many YouTube videos of Pikachu deflating (and farting) elegantly across the heavens!
My kids have horse hoppers, which look to be the same size, and I am seriously questioning that adult’s smile.
55 quid for something that can be easily punctured?? Nae thanks ta.
